OAKLAND (KCBS) — The long, drawn-out fight over a proposed lease agreement that would keep the Oakland A’s in town may be coming to an end, as the city council is set to vote on the deal on Wednesday night despite an 11th-hour postponement request by Mayor Jean Quan.
Mayor Quan is trying to postpone that vote a week after urging the board to approve it. Quan hopes the vote can be postponed until the end of July, as she wants City Administrator Henry Gardner to negotiate some “clarifications” with A’s owner Lew Wolff. Quan has not said what those clarifications are. For his part, Wolff has said he is not interested in re-opening negotiations and wants the lease as is.
